A quick video tour of a likeness sketcbook I started back in August 2017.
I’m filling it with five minute (approximately) drawings of celebs from photo reference, typically done on their birthday.
Some are loose and recognizable, some are loose and unrecognizable, and some are just stiff and shitty.
so he also gets a likeness adjacent caricature, drawn from reference
(elapsed drawing time about 9 and a half minutes)
continued to hone it in a bit:
never quite nail it.
it’s more, i dunno, bill murray adjacent.
you deserve a better sketch
I’m sure you’ll get it
just not from me

don, i’ve owed you this doodle for awhile
happy birthday you dirty hippie
here’s a quick video of the digital inking and coloring of the digital sketch
watch more doodlecasts
and here’s the reference photos so you can see how much i missed the mark
in honor of the debates last night, which i didn’t watch…more presidential candidates
you can check out how far my likenesses missed the mark below.
and rick perry’s campaign is suspended now right? whatever. i drew him when he was still running. my only regret is not drawing him better-er
and i think i completely missed scott walker
these feel a little better after that awful jeb bush drawing. sheesh
sure, the presidential election is over a year away, but started doing a daily drawing of the candidates
likeness is tough and hopefully i improve as the election nears
